Calling everyone with any connection to Scotland whatsoever, or anyone who loves its poetry and songs! 

Rhumbelow Theatre Durban will present The Tale Of Burns, a journey with Mim Erasmus and Frank Graham through the life, songs and poetry of the Scottish Bard, Robert Burns and other things Scottish. There will be one performance on March 21.

Celebrations, worldwide, are held close to the poet’s birthday, January 25, and this is Rhumbelow’s Annual Tribute.

Mim Erasmus, our very own Minstrel, and Frank Graham, raconteur and story teller de luxe need no introduction, and we are guaranteed an afternoon of fabulous music and rib hugging hilarity.

We all know Burns songs like Ye banks and braes and My love is like a red, red rose, and Mim will sing these and lead audiences in a singalong of other favourites – with the words on a screen!!

Frank will regale everyone with Burns poems and tall tales to complete the afternoon’s entertainment.

Join Rhumbelow for an afternoon guaranteed to lift your spirits, warm your heart and leave you with a song in your heart and a smile on your lips.

The Tale Of Burns has one performance on March 21, 2021, at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)
